Cartlidge & Browne Pinot Noir 2007

California, United States
2667 days ago

Roger scored this wine: 86/100

Winemaker Notes – A brilliant medium-full color, the wine shows buoyant aromas of fresh cherry and strawberry, with plenty of wonderful beet root character typical of Pinot Noir...

Cloudline Pinot Noir 2008

Oregon, United States
2667 days ago

Roger scored this wine: 87/100

This lovely little Pinot is a go-to staple on the Bacchus and Beery patio. Cloudline is well priced and when we find it on sale (sometimes as low as $15), we load up. The wine is fruit forward with very soft tannins with flavors of cherries, blackberries and red fruits.

Brut Prestige

Mumm Napa Brut Prestige Sparkling White

Napa Valley, California, United States
2667 days ago

Roger scored this wine: 93/100

The many accolades for Mumm Napa Brut Prestige are well deserved (WE 92 & WS 90) and a fantastic value at $20. A delicious blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir results in a beautiful layering of citrus, honey, melon and a touch of strawberry. May I have another glass, please?

Artesa Vineyards & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Napa County, Sonoma County, California, United States
2667 days ago

Roger scored this wine: 89/100

Expect to pick flavors of raspberry, blackberry cassis, dark chocolate and vanilla among others. The tannins blend well with the fruit to create a very long finish. Drink this wine slowly so you can really appreciate its layered complexity.

Barricia

RavensWood Barricia Zinfandel 2007

Sonoma Valley, California, United States
2667 days ago

Roger scored this wine: 90/100

Patience, Grasshooper, Patience. Ravenswood Barrica Single Vineyard is a very structured Zinfandel. At opening this zinfandel (24% Petite Sirah) is a bit tight, but give it time to breathe and it opens nicely albeit still structured. This old vine, low yield, dry farmed vineyard produces an intense and perfumed wine. We were surprised at how well this wine paired with our dinner of pasta with a rustic spicy Italian meat/tomato sauce. The food enhanced the wine and the wine enhanced the food. The way it should be!
